This recording was used for the closing scene of the first ''Sex & the City'' film and after allot of searching I ironically found it on Linnrecords.

It then mysteriously vanished off LINN, as it did from Spotify.

Nobody really knows what this Robert Burns poem is referring to but it doesn't really matter. It's from Scotlands most famous poet and is a solid piece of the Scottish New Years tradition ... more and more an international tradition.

I love New Year ....

Gogobot update ... ''Play o2 arena as support for Rihanna''

Click O2 Arena photo for Gogobot latest video!

The fantastic electro-pop sensation that is GoGoBot played our opening party in the shop in Gothenburg early summer. Since then they have played Tea-in-the-park and Bestival, played support for JLS and Olly Muirs, Simple Minds and Big Country.

On Wednesday, Gogobot finished off a spectacular year of live performances in style, playing one of the most prestigious UK venues, the London o2 Arena, as pre-band to super star Rihanna.

''I actually helped build the venue back in 1999 (then called the millennium dome), erecting the masts and connecting the cables. I have a fantastic picture on me hanging from a rope at the top of one of the masts ... wasn't as much fun as it looked ...''

Gordon's comment to me after the gig: (Gogobot drummer (Previously in rock band 'Gun'), producer, song-writer & general all round music studio nerd)

Big thanks to our partner and supplier of acoustic panels, Akustiktryck and to Håkan from the smart advertising agency for publishingthis on-line article.

These panels have resolved major acoustic problems we had in-store.

To achieve this level of acoustic improvement, whilst simultaneously visually enhancing the look of the bran new store, really shows off the potential of this product for use in any environment.

It provides a hidden acoustic solution for a commercial environment, the tasteful modern home or even the music enthusiast looking for the perfect room acoustics.

We chose black and white prints of the longest living HiFi product in continuous production and widely acclaimed 'worlds best record player' to mark it's 40th Birthday next year but the process also works just as impressively in full colour.

We have tried acoustic panels before, ones you could print on, but had issues with finish and odour. When we received these first Akustiktryck demonstr…

Event hus Peoples & Schmidt Torsdag 15 Dec från kl 18:30

En kort demonstration av möjligheter med LINN systemen med streaming av musik/film från Spotify/Youtube/NAS (i butiken och remote-PC/VPN) sen en kort demonstration av Blueray/DVD och spel genom PS3.

Ska skynda mig genom va står ovanför för att fortsätter tills ett variant om ''Klanger och Spår''.

''Klanger och Spår''Välkommen till "Klanger och Spår"Klanger och Spår är en sammankomst där vi bjuder in till avnjutande av den vinnande kombinationen musik och folköl.Döpt efter Tomas Tranströmers diktsamling från 1966 vill vi fokusera på det poetiska lyssnandet av väl återgiven musik - förnimmelser, associationer, historier etc står över teknikaliteter.Vi körde en test för några månad sedan med mycket gott utfall. (Härliga öppna samtal, gemensamma vänner upptäcktes, Nobelpris utdelades, etc etc).

Anmäl :

LINN DSM, My test of possibilities ... concentration placed on function rather than optimal performance ...

The kit:

LINN Akurate DSM (not Klimax as shown on pic), Digital Streamer, Pre-amplifier with HDMi (attached with Network cable)
LINN Klimax 320A Speakers

Other equipment:

Samsung 8 Smart TV (film streaming, music streaming, Internet) Toslink to DSM & Wireless Networked
PS3 (Blueray, Gaming, streaming (film, music), internet) Toslink to DSM & Wireless Networked
Apple Macbook, Toslink to DSM & Wireless Networked

First out was IDOL on TV4Play (internet) on Macbook using 3G Modem Worked just perfectly .. of course the sound is a bit thin but it's hard to know how good the source material is. The advertising breaks are always higher volume but even so, they sound just perfect if that's anything to go on. Totally acceptable solution (Wireless mouse & ''sexy'' keyboard helps) and I thoroughly enjoyed IDOL though the guy (so boring I can't even remember his name, technically fantastic but I just don't believe him) should of course went instead of Moa (…

Inte minst fascinerande med desa fantastiska ljudanläggningar som bidrar till upplevelsen. Tänk om man hade det så i sin vardag. Hälsa Martin och Gustav. Med vänlig hälsningBirgitta LernvallArkitekt SAR/MSALERNVALLARKITEKT &DESIGNTranslation:Thanks for the nice lunch meeting last week.

Soon Xmas ... Red Red Wine ...

This takes me back ...

Company lunch days leading up to Xmas ... can you help .. laugh ... are you hungry?

The architect day we had on Wednesday was a great success and we want to trial this as a concept leading up to Xmas.

Our partners are Americabaren (Amazing food), Castellani & Smith (amazing lighting), LK Hjelle (Worlds best sofas) & LINN of course.

Your Company or group, small or large, enjoy a fantastic luxury lunch in a great environment and we do a quick 5 minute demonstration with 1 Box & speakers system showing that we can make anything in the home sound better.

First we play Spotify then a music video from Youtube (Using Samsung 8 TV), Songcasted to every room. We then play a short clip from a Blueray Movie then on to a studio Master. To finish we ask one of the audience with an iPhone to connect to our network and play up their own music wirelessly direct from the iPhone (LINN's variation on AIRPLAY) to our LINN DSM.

This takes approximately 5 minutes! You enjoy the great Lunch and we invite you to wonder around our shop and encourage you to listen in the gold room…

''ORB''. A great way to enjoy the music and films on your home server from anywhere in the world!

I stream all my own music/films from my own home computer using my ipad, iphone or laptop (Mac or PC) from anywhere in the world ... even on the move using 3G. Don't you?

Try it out .. it's amazingly good and reliable ... & FREE! (App for Ipad costs 5o Kr or something like that). I even use it to stream kids films from my living-room to my Sons room using the internet (not my home network) ... multi-room film streaming with no cables!

Click the picture above to find out more and to install this system yourself or if you just want everything to work without the hassle ... book us for a home visit, for a modest fee of course!

Your LINN DS can do more than you know ;)

Architect Day @ Peoples & Schmidt a big success!

Big thanks to all the Architects that attended our event today in our shop and enjoyed the fantastic lunch prepared by Americabaren. Also a big thanks to our partner, LK Hjelle Sofor Norway (Elizabeth), whom both helped with the preparation and helped draw in, what was, a fantastic attendance ..

LINN can now cater for any need and we showed off iPad control, Songcast (party mode), simple solutions for Spotify/Youtube and of course played up DVD & Blue-Ray on LINN DSM products with Samsung 8 TV (now available to mail order from P&S) ...

What do you want ... ok, here is my iPad ... here is what you wanted ... not only quickly and easily but sounds better than they have ever experienced ...

Great day!

How cool is it when two 18 year old young ladies come in with a Jimi Hendrix vinyl!

And leave with a new Vinyl player ....

Now Peoples & Schmidt are in business :)

I can imagine that was just a great experience but what was your purpose there?Gilad Tiefenbrun: I first met Craig Kallman, CEO of Atlantic Records, a couple of years back at a Linn event in New York.He's a huge audiophile and owns a lot of Linn gear including several LP12s.I was presenting Studio Masters played through Linn DS and he was blown away.He spoke to me afterwards and said he wanted to take me out to dinner when he next came to "England"!Gilad Tiefenbrun: A few months later we met up in London, in a trendy restaurant in Shoreditch.I explained about Studio Master downloads, and how Linn had been making downloading work for the artists and customers for a few y…

**Cancelled** Tonights DSM Event ...

I am sorry to announce that due to a technical problem we are forced to move tonight's event forward approximately one week.

I'll confirm the new date as soon as possible and stay on tonight should anyone not see this message. For those lucky few that don't get this message, you can at least enjoy a cold beer and some great music if not the DSM :)

Got a little shock when trying to attach this cable from my TV to ADSM and unfortunately then touched the chassis of the DSM at the same time and felt the voltage on that as well. Pretty sure it's a faulty cable (perhaps TV?) and a now 'fried' chip-set in the DSM! Hmnnn ... bugger!

I can take something positive from this and that is - LINN are fantastic ... a brand new replacement ADSM has already left the factory and on route to me ... fantastic performance from their products & fantastic service from their staff! Big thanks to Jamie/Alison from LINN.

My apologies again! // Martin

It's still not an Apple World, it's still an Open World ...

The following is a combination of information published by LINN and points from my own perspective.
Tomorrow afternoon I will do an on-line interview with Gilad Tiefenbrun, Managing Director, LINN Products Ltd, which will be published on this blogg. It will be interesting to hear his opinions to where this is leading, why and what it means for LINN.
Apple’s decision to finally open source its Apple Lossless (ALAC) format is welcome news. Apple lossless is basically studio sized music files (24 Bit), uncompressed, unlike the standard file MP3 found on iTunes or even CD quality which is also a compressed version of the original recording.For one thing, people who use iTunes to store and archive their CD collection (16 Bit), and take care to change the audio quality to Apple Lossless, will be able to stream their collection to a wider range of products. For another thing it means you and I, the consumer, will have more access to higher quality music, in fact studio quality (24 Bit)…

Two best new products from LINN in 2011? After work event Friday 18 Nov, 18:00

The all new LINN remote control with programmable buttons and I counted this morning .. a staggering 52 buttons (the old handset) have now been replaced by 28! 'Less is more''

Though not the reference in the new DSM series, Klimax DSM taking that position of course, the new Akurate DSM is for many of us the most exciting and for our shop it opens up a whole new world of opportunity.

This is a super high end source, a super high end pre-amplifier, an analogue to digital converter that broadcasts even your vinyl across the home for multi room solution, or what we plan to test, (In Cooperation with Svenskagramofon world's renown Studio) is broadcast ''LIVE'' music throughout the shop so our future gigs here may come through the LINN multi room system and perhaps further to your livingroom.

There is more: DSM is a DAC with 3 toslink, 3 SPDIFF & 4 HDMi inputs so it manages anything that requires sound playback in the home, PS3, xBox, Blueray player ...
